Get to Know your Category Dashboard

Let’s take a closer look at your Category Dashboard. 


You’ll find your Category Dashboard under your Home Dashboard. 


1. Category Views 



This graph provides an overview how many views you receive for All the categories you have written about in the select time period. Use the menu drop down to filter data for a specific category. 


It’s crucial you know exactly what your readers are interested in reading from you. This way you can begin to focus publishing for a niche, fine-tune a particular style of writing and realise how frequently you need to publish your work. 


2. Views by Category 


The Views of Post graph is an assessment of the number of the articles you write for All or a specific category, and what the corresponding Reads are for that category. 


Remember, a Read is when someone spends over 60 seconds reading your article. 


You can filter by All or a specific category. This information is critical in understanding the relationship between publishing and receiving Reads. It goes without saying, the more often you publish, the more Reads you will receive. Building on that, understanding this insight means you now know which categories you should publish more about!


Keep an eye on the Articles section on the right. It will filter according to your category selection; showcasing your top articles for the chosen category. 



3. My Popular Categories 



What percentage of your Views or Reads are attributed to a particular category? Toggle between Reads or Views to compare what your audience are reading. 


This is great for you to start tailoring your work to a particular category, audience and/or location. Remember, you can change your date-range at the top to assess information for different time periods. 





Article not appearing in Insights

On most occasions your work will receive and appear in Insights immediately after publishing. However, you may face an instance where you’re not able to see your article in Leakd Insights.


Here are some handy troubleshooting steps you can take to resolve, ordered by trial:


1. Reload the page


2. Hard refresh your page

PC: Ctrl + Shift + R

Mac: Command + Shift + R


3. Check that you have Published the Article

You can find your Published articles in My Stories. 


In the Editor, select Hub from the drop-down menu 


Then select Stories from the new drop-down menu

Here you will find your Published work. If you cannot see your article here, it means you have not published it. If you have saved it as a draft, you can find it in the ‘My Articles’ panel in your Editor. 




4. Are you looking at the right Dashboard in your Insights? 

Your dashboards are quite specific. It may just be the case that your article has had no views or reads (because you’ve just published it) yet. Did you include Keywords? If you did not, it may not show up in the Keywords dashboard.

You can toggle with the category selection from the first data set – Top Sources.
